Barack Obama was a harmonic convergence of bad news for America when he was elected in 2008. He was a neophyte politically at the federal level. He had NEVER been an executive of ANYTHING…not even a lemonade stand. The bulk of his political experience was from the toxic and highly partisan political landscape of Chicago. Because of his race and charismatic personality (to the vacuous), the MSM willfully and obsequiously have refused to vet him. Instead of performing its traditional duty as watchdog for the public, the Left-stream media instead became Obama’s lap dog. His Chicago political experience led him to attack the opposition right out of the gate instead of working with them, leading to a permanently, sharply divided government. This seems also to be right out of Saul Alinsky’s playbook, “Rules For Radicals.” (Shrillary Clinton wrote her college thesis on how Alinsky was too mild/tame.) The end result is a terrible President who has damaged the United States both at home and abroad.
